Unfortunately, a quick look at the ingredients label reveals multiple ingredients that make toaster strudels NOT vegan-friendly.
They have a rather large list of ingredients, but here are the ingredients that a vegan might care about:
Palm oil, sugar, whey, mono and diglycerides, egg yolk
Whey is a derivative of milk and is never vegan, neither are egg yolks.
That alone means toaster strudels are not vegan.
The rest of those may or may not be vegan depending on your definition of veganism:
- Many vegans don’t consume palm oil because of the animals that the palm industry hurts.
- Sugar in North America is sometimes vegan, but is sometimes made with bone char (not vegan).
- Mono and diglycerides may be vegan, since they can come from either plant or animal sources.
In summary, toaster strudels are clearly off the table for vegans.
But all hope is not lost! You can make vegan toaster strudels yourself?
They’re much easier to make than you might think, so if you’re really missing toaster strudels, they’ll be worth the effort.
